KASNEB New Strategic Plan for 2022-2027 Launched
Kenya Accountants and Secretaries National Examinations Board (Kasneb) has launched a new five-year corporate strategic plan to guide its operations in line with the changing world of work.
The launch of the 6th Corporate Strategic Plan (2022-2027), which coincides with Kasneb’s 53rd anniversary celebrations, provides robust strategies to facilitate Kasneb’s renewal in the face of a slew of disruptions that have presented both challenges and opportunities to business and global economies.
The strategic plan considers the global agenda defined by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Kasneb, in particular, has mainstreamed Goal 4, which advocates for inclusive and equitable quality education as well as the promotion of lifelong learning opportunities for all.
“The initiatives in the strategic plan come at an opportune time to shape the future strategic direction and better positioning of Kasneb in the global arena.
“Lately, we have witnessed a world where organisations have to keep reinventing themselves to operate in the prevailing competitive markets.
“This strategic plan enables Kasneb to proactively revolutionalise service delivery through adoption of digitalization,” says Dr. Julius Muia, Principal Secretary, National Treasury.
According to the PS, the initiative to set the strategic direction for the next five years marks the start of a journey toward delivering quality examinations and services while also improving Kasneb’s sustainability in the face of various uncertainties and disruptions such as the impact of Covid-19, national and global economic uncertainties, stiff global competition, evolving generations leading to new demands, and technological evolution, among other developments.
The professional examination body also launched three initiatives aimed at implementing their strategic plan, including the awarding of accreditation certificates for its qualifications by Kenya National Qualifications Authority (KNQA).
Accreditation certificates were awarded to two (2) Rwandan institutions and five (5) Kenyan institutions, as well as a Memorandum of Understanding with Strathmore Research and Consultancy Centre for the development of study materials.
“Kasneb has continued to play a vital role in developing business professionals who have made valuable contributions globally.
We are therefore intent on transforming business professionals through examinations, certification, accreditation, research, innovation and consultancy,” said Dr. Nancy Muriuki, Chairperson, Kasneb board.
Kasneb, she says, constantly assesses, reviews, and improves its syllabuses and processes in the spirit of this mandate to ensure that the quality of the examinations meets customer requirements.
“Many of our alumni are key decision makers in different sectors all over the world. The qualifications offered by Kasneb are benchmarked internationally to ensure they are responsive to emerging global trends,” said Dr. Muriuki.
Dr. Nicholas Letting, secretary and CEO of Kasneb said accreditation by KNQA will significantly improve the coordination and harmonization of education, training, assessment, and quality assurance of all qualifications awarded in the country.
He also stated that granting accreditation certificates to training institutions in Kenya and Rwanda broadens the much-needed framework for national development.

The CEO also stated that by signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the Strathmore Research and Consultancy Centre (SRCC), we will be able to harness the development of study materials while closing the professional skills and competencies gap.
